Justin’s View

In 16-35mm f3.5, Colorado, landscape, people, Travel by Robert Lussier1 Comment

One of the benefits of doing this photo blog is it gives me the opportunity to meet like minded photographers from, pretty much, all over the world. One such photographer is Justin Balog, from Colorado. I’ve known him for about three years, but didn’t officially meet him until the Moab trip this past April. In …

When Skies are Boring

In 16-35mm f3.5, landscape, Travel, Utah by Robert Lussier2 Comments

The sky was boring at Delicate Arch when we were there last month. I knew the arch would glow red at sunset and our main reason for being there was for light painting after dark, so I wasn’t fretting the lack of clouds. To pass the time until the Magic began, I kept shooting knowing …

Cisco

In 16-35mm f3.5, Travel, Utah by Robert Lussier1 Comment

The first official stop on the Utah NXNW trip was the the Ghost Town of Cisco, Utah. It was an interesting visit. Justin Balog, who helped orchestrate this trip, assured us that in all the times he’s shot Cisco, he has never seen any other photographers there. Yet when we pulled up to the town, …

Hampton

In 16-35mm f3.5, long exposure by Robert Lussier2 Comments

It has been a crazy weekend. On Friday morning, I picked up a rental camera and lens at Lens Pro To Go. The D800 and 24-70 zoom are being used as you read this post, to shoot above the start of the Boston Marathon from a helicopter. It sounds sexy, but the shoot has practical …

Everett

In 16-35mm f3.5, lawrence, mills by Robert Lussier2 Comments

Last summer I went to the Everett Mill to get a shot of the building my friend Tom Short requested. He wanted a tight shot of the building’s facade looking up towards the clock, which was partially blocked by branches. While Tom was standing on a 10 foot ladder, leaning into the trees to trim …

The Breakout

In 16-35mm f3.5, urbex by Robert Lussier1 Comment

Back in December I went on a shoot with Steve Perlmutter and Mike Tully to Cape Ann, here in Massachusetts. Our first stop was Annisquam Lighthouse in Rockport for a dawn shoot. Our second stop, and the main reason for the excursion, was the abandoned Cape Ann Tool Company in Rockport, Massachusetts. We killed about three hours …

Up the Down Staircase

In 16-35mm f3.5, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier3 Comments

Going through the archives last night I found this one from the Everett Mill stairwell. It was shot in 2010 and left there, unprocessed. So I gave it some Photomatix and onOne Software love. I think I know what happened. I shot a couple of images in this stairwell that day and had to pick …

Black and Light

In 16-35mm f3.5, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier2 Comments

The afternoon sun spills onto the floor in this shot from the sixth floor of the Everett Mill. This is from a couple of weekends when Steven Perlmutter, Mike Tully and I clicked away at the mills for a couple of hours. I went back this past weekend. Not to shoot, although I did do …

Stone Window

In 16-35mm f3.5, lawrence, mills, urbex by Robert Lussier4 Comments

Today’s image is a new one from the Stone Mill in Lawrence. Most of my shots from this location are HDR, appropriately enough, I might add. Locations like this are perfect candidates for HDR. Anyway, in keeping with my recent foray into Black and White, here you go. In yesterday’s post I mentioned something about …
